Posted:In my quest to spewforth every iota of poi knowledge that I obtain with the hope that it will contribute to the collective...



I found a new plane that I hadn't played with before. I'm sure that most of you guys have played with it but it's my flavor of the minute.



Whenever I had been doing butterfly stuff, I'd always kinda pictured it as either being in front of me (like the first type of butterfly newbies learn) or behind me (like over the shoulder or btb.)



I recently found that when you're behind the back, you can either have the poi spin totally behind your back and behind your hands, like most people do... OR you can have them spin behind your back but between your butt and your wrists (if the chain is short enough)... this gives a VERY different read to the behind the back and I think allows for dancing as you're alternating between behind-the-back-and-behind-the-wrist to behind-the-back-but-in-front-of-the-wrist. It tends to move the shoulders and would look hot on someone hotter than me. biggrin



This plane also exists in front of the body and is what you go from/to when you're doing a watermill.



So I think there's 4 distinct 'depths' of planes that exist (IN MY MIND ONLY) for one poi to exist at when spinning in the wall plane. There's the poi in front of the body AND in front of the wrists, there's the poi between the chest and the wrists, there's the poi behind the body between the butt and the wrists behind the body, and then the poi behind both the butt and the wrists. Of course there's infinite possibilities of the X and Z planes with this... can I call it the Y plane? I probably shouldn't. wink



Just playing the "Where can we move the poi?" game...

Posted:Yea, it's groovy. I've played with the same direction one more than the butterfly. It seems a bit mad to see someone contantly be able to have the poi going the same direction in front of them. ubbtickled

I found I started looking at buzzsaws a little different than I had been before because of how nice the turns and transitions are.

I haven't tried inverting BTB though...hmmmm...cool idea. ubbidea

Posted:real quick... somebody called this inverted... this is inside, not inverted. insides are planes facing same way, between arms and body, as above, wall plane or side plane, inverted are planes facing each other, wall or side. just for term clarification smile. BTW i highly recommend practicing these a lot. wink quadruples moves in the future

But thanks for the clarification.

And stop talking like glass with this vague "moves are possible" "You will see someday" crap. It only makes it more frustrating. wink
